Drugs, gun and fake money seized

Two men were arrested on drug charges after authorities raided a pair of homes in southern Huron County during the weekend.

The Huron County Sheriff’s Office used its Special Response Team to execute two search warrants Saturday following a month-long drug trafficking investigation.

The residents raided by the team were located at 38 W. Broadway St., Plymouth, and 8 Senior Drive, Apt. 33, Greenwich.

Inside the Plymouth home, authorities seized suspected heroin, prescription pills, drug abuse instruments and materials used to package and sell narcotics, deputies said.

Deputies also seized a 9mm pistol and cash and recovered stolen property related to ongoing investigation by Willard police, as well as suspected counterfeit bills.

In the Greenwich apartment, deputies located suspected marijuana and drug paraphernalia resulting in misdemeanor charges against Eric J. Wilkinson.

John T. Ellis, 24, and Stephani M. Mosley, 29, were arrested and charged with trafficking in heroin and possession of a controlled substance. Additional charges against these and other suspects might be filed in the near future, deputies said.

The Greenwich, Norwalk, Plymouth and Willard police departments assisted deputies with the investigation and searches.
